Not too long ago Kelli was at the thrift store that I love and found embroidery floss. She sent me two pictures. The caption was 10 cents a skein.
There was this box….
and this box….
She asked if I needed any. I said no…it was a very hesitant no but it was a no.
The next time I saw here she brought what she bought….the big box with the full skeins. It was $20 for all the floss. That means 200 skeins!!
Kelli knows I love organizing floss. REALLY LOVE organizing floss so she brought it to my house to help her….
Here I am sorting…..
We got it all sorted and laughed saying we wondered if we had EVERY DMC number of floss yet.
A couple days later I was at the thrift store. LOOK that same box of floss was still there only now it said “2 for 10 cents”. Awe…I said not before. Could I say no again. UGH.
I was almost closing time. I knew the gals at check out would never count all of the pieces. So I sat the box on the counter and said I’d take it but if they didn’t want to count it all out and just name a price, I was fine with that. the gals looked at each other and said- there really isn’t a lot of floss on some of these. How about $2. I said I’d take it. So home I went with floss to sort. I was HAPPY!! Did I NEED thread…probably not but this was fun and in the end, there were a lot of threads that I didn’t have. I do lots of projects that only use bits of this and that so I really do think I’ll use some of these up. As for wondering if we have all of the colors….I think some day over nap time I’m going to print out the list and see how many colors I’m missing.
